The GiSS, run by AGW advocate James Hansen, reported that October was the warmest October on record.
One slight problem– it wasn’t. It was actually a carryover of September data of very hot Russian data. Sattelites showed a much different story.
Climate Skeptic compares the two metrics. The Russian carryover data should have been caught, esepcially after the huge uptick in temperatures. Some people are a little too quick to claim dramatic warming– especially as the trends are on a steady decline.
GISS at least had the integrity to report the error— although they pretty much shrugged their shoulders as to why the error was not caught.
